Simon Says Stamp July Card Kit! (& GIVEAWAY)!

Hi everyone!

I hope you've had a wonderful day! Mine was a good day.... one of those days that you can look back on when you're having a rough one and be reminded that things will get better. :) Today the kids did their school work without complaint AND even got some extra work done all on their own. Yay! We're SO close to finishing up our schooling for the year. :) I also got some much needed weeding and other gardening work done. The best part was a 1 hr phone call with the sweetest, most encouraging friend. Angela, if you're reading this, *thank you*. You are a blessing. We really should get together sometime soon. :) Another fun part of the day was the arrival of my Simon Says Stamp July Card Kit! I've dived right in already and made a couple of things.


*Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the Month JULY 2013 SUMMER PARTY


If you follow my blog you *may* have noticed that I try to make at least one card from the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit that kind of goes in a different direction than I feel the kit was intended for. This month's kit screams PARTIES and BIRTHDAYS...so of course I made an anniversary card. Hee hee!

Here it is:

 I was inspired by the sweet hearts in the background paper, pairing it with the scalloped edge border sticker, one of the word stickers (celebrate), and some Simon Says Stamp dies.

Here's what I used for today's card:


As always sweet Heidi, owner of Simon Says Stamp has provided a card kit from this month for me to give away on my blog! Thanks, Heidi! Just leave a comment on any or all of my 4 card kit posts in the next week and I'll announce a winner next Wednesday, June 26th.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
